And I agree phones are about to get pricey even on contract. I just feel the better investment is in a phone that brings more to the table.
I get it, the iPhoney has a great battery... but you have to use iTunes, everything costs an arm & leg, and you can't remove the battery or buy and extended battery because crApple seals their phones off so that (god forbid) someone want to upgrade the battery and/or memory.
What about my post (More storage, LTE connectivity, larger screen, etc.) makes you think that the iPhone 4 brings more to the table other than battery life?
I just don't want to see all you that are supporting crApple phones/devices come back in a few months when the iPhone 5 comes out and it's $50 more than the TBolt was when it was released. (Again, I can't prove that, but mark this down, I have a feeling that my guesstimate will come true.)
I will take swapping out a battery or charging the phone for 30 minutes in the middle of a day rather than have to pay out the buttocks for music/apps/videos and have to succomb to crApple's censorship.
They may be innovative, but everyone takes their innovation and makes it 200 times better and cheaper to boot.
(Am I still posting on an Android message board? Just checking...)
yeah, you are. but your points arent good points. really, you need more than 16gb of storage when you leave from your computer?
it just gets old saying its crapple and cant customize!?!? its a phone, not a computer.
Secondly I will never buy an apple device or product. I'm a graphic designer and could care less what Apple brings to the table.
I am however interested in the Samsung Galaxy S 2 which has a better display, more efficient processor, thinner design, more RAM, twice the amount of built in storage and Bluetooth 3.0.. It will ship with Gingerbread. It will also pack NFC.
I'm not saying the Thunderbolt is awful. I just don't think it is the right move for me. I'm sure it will be a wonderful device for anyone who buys it.
